Garnett P. McMillan, Ph.D.

Telephone: 503-220-8262 x56275

Current Appointments:

  • NCRAR Biostatistician
  • Clinical Assistant Professor, Dept. of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Oregon Health & Science University
  • Adjunct Assistant Professor, Dept. of Anthropology, University of New Mexico

Research Interests:

As staff biostatistician with the NCRAR, Dr. McMillan collaborates with investigators on a wide variety of topics, including

  • randomized device trials for the treatment of tinnitus;
  • epidemiology of auditory dysfunction as a consequence of aging, noise exposure, blast injury, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, and Parkinson’s disease;
  • development of serial monitoring protocols for adult and pediatric patients treated with aminoglycosides and cisplatin.

In addition, Dr. McMillan’s independently investigates new statistical approaches to problems in auditory research, including psychoacoustic testing, sound localization, screening methods, sample size calculations, serial monitoring, and Bayesian applications in all areas.
